    See this is what makes me wonder why I've even bothered to reply to any of this.

    Icy will be on for 24 hours and you are complaining because the boxes will be on as well at the same time. You can't honestly be that stuck up that you think this is a bad thing, yet you are still complaining.

    Honestly I'm not too surprised that the devs went half a decade without ever wanting to talk to players when some have attitudes like this, it's not called Me-Orbit.

    No one can say if the event box's will be out for sure on the 11th, the idea of all day icy's is part of the DO birthday as is the opening off the breach GG and adding something extra on for the birthday gives every one a chance at getting something from the event.

    all day on a friday. hope I get a chance. Changing servers isn't an option at this time like the server I play on and it's English speaking. Plus I'm a west coast dude.

    I'm not entirely sure why anything would have to do with solo. I believe we have a level invasion gate where there is a distinct map for each company. I think the programming won't be that bad XD

    The best why to fix this : Make the event missions so if you didn't finish the one before you can do the next. That way when your life gets in the way, you can always come back and do the missions that you missed. This way those of us who just may not be able to do one of the missions isn't expluded from the rest of the event missions. That is giving everyone a fair chance, thats not what takes place now. Having and event that only those who play in a 4 hour time slot is not fair to those of us who don't play in that 4 hour time slot.
     
  7. I stated in the beginning that they had some all day icy last year, and got trampled on. Now we have one coming up and people are still not happy. Its crazy. The only bad thing is that it is on the first day of the weekend and people tend to do other things then. However, we can't have everything. As stated, we are not even halfway.

    There was a question about normal or standard work schedules. I life in the US but spent many years in Germany. I can not speak for all work environments but evening work seems to be transportation, eating establishments, gas stations, and entertainment. Most commercial business has closed shop by 6 pm, so the icy schedule is good. People can come home, do the icy, and then have time to go out and meet up with friends afterwards. I miss that country.

    It is quite the same here in the US except there is more commercial activity at night that I see. I personally work at night during the regular icy schedules. I have been fortunate to be able to still take part and keep up but not everyone has that opportunity. Most in the work force would be terminated if they tried to log onto the game during a work break. People get fired for making phone calls during those same breaks, and playing games at work is definitely looked down upon.

    Please people, just watch the schedule and see what may work for you. Not everyone, me included, can do everything. Some will not be able to log in on the all day icy for 10 min. It is a matter of priority. We like to think that this game is the priority but real life is. Let it go. I include myself in the we because, and trust me on this, I throw the worst fit when I can't log into the game for any reason, especially internet outages. I came home one day with the intent of finishing a mission on its last day to discover I had no service and there was less than an hour until the event was over. My provider got an ear full that would had banned me for life from chat and the forums. :p

    I live in Germany and have done for a good many years and over years many things have changed. Commercial business have now extended there hours to 22.00 hrs and there is more than ever unsocial hours, the old office hours Germany is now a thing of the past.

    The 24 hour DO birthday icy event will give a lot of players time to catch up with the advantage that a lot of players will be in the winter GG thus giving those doing icy's more of a chance.
